Review: Evian Facial Water Spray

I’m sure you guys have seen or heard from this spray before. I think this was in a lot of tabloids, magazines, websites a good few years ago. Did I follow the trend? Oh yes I did. I had these sprays in all sizes possible – one for the handbag, one “limited edition” medium sized one, and one huge one of 300 ml. Crazy, I know!

So, did this change my life while using this? I have to be blunt about this: it just didn’t. Of course, it’s great when you’re in super hot and humid countries, and you want a boost to freshen up. It does the job, but so does normal water in a spritz, it just isn’t worth the extra pennies. I’ve bought this because it was in a load of magazines and blogs (I’m a sucker for those things), so I gave it a try. I don’t regret trying it, no not at all, thinking about it I just don’t think it’s worth spending the money on just mineral water. I mainly used up my Evian spray by using it after my mineral powder or I sprayed it on me while tanning, if it became too hot.

You must be wondering whether I’m totally against facial water sprays. Hell to the no. There are some really great facial mists in the market from like Avène, Caudalie, La Roche-Posay, Shu Uemura, REN, Clinique – you name it. They just don’t have mineral water (like the ones we drink from), no their water either comes from a “special” place, has particular (healing) ingredients or it is depsea water. No clue what ‘depsea water’ is. But hey, it’s from Shu, it’s Japanese, and loads of raves in the blogger world, so it must be one hell of a spray;-)

If you’re still interested to try facial mists, I’d recommend getting the smaller travel-size ones. This way you can try it, and if it doesn’t suit your taste, then it won’t break your heart if you won’t use it.

Have you tried any facial mists before?
